How durable is Bauwerk Limewash?
If you are painting natural surfaces such as render or brick our paints are wonderfully durable as they are absorbed into the wall. If you are painting our paints on already painted or sealed walls, they are not as scrubbable as other paints. Because our paints are made from natural materials, they are not made to be indestructible, it is part of the beautiful natural qualities of the paint. However, they are perfectly durable enough and have been used in thousands of homes all over the world.
We work with nature to make paints that are good for the environment including your home environment, many standard paints have a toxic mix of chemicals such as biocides, plastics and heavy metals to make them function as paints that stick to your wall, and make it possible to scrub them. With natural antibacterial qualities, our paints are suitable for a high-humidity environment. We have specially developed our BAUWERK Prep Coat as a bridge coat between standard paint and primers to make limewash more durable, and easy to apply. If your walls need a refresh, simply whoosh on another coat of limewash, it's quick and easy, and it can be repainted anytime. Each coat makes it more durable and best of all more beautiful, every coat just enhances what is there.
